Granthams joins Entwistle Group

Originally a Sign Making / Sign Writing business formed in Blackpool in 1890, since then, Granthams Graphic Technology division evolved into one of the UK’s largest resellers of sign printing equipment and supplies with an enviable reputation for service and support.
 
For the past two decades, since introducing the very first fully working solvent printer to the industry, the Preston based operation focused their efforts on selling and supporting large-format Printers, Cutters and Finishing Equipment for the outdoor graphics and signage industry. During that same time, Entwistle Group continued to expand their own wide format business with a focus on CAD and Inkjet Graphics Printers and associated supplies as well as their core business sustainable print.


First Solvent Printer


At the beginning of May 2022, the Graphic Technology division joined the Entwistle Group who have a similar heritage, tracking back their humble beginnings to 1899. Entwistle Group have heavily invested in print equipment as well as sustainability and look to strengthen their group with the knowledge and expertise of the Granthams GT Team.
 
Kirsty Reader, General Manager of Granthams Graphic Technology, stated “we see this as an incredible opportunity for both teams to share their extensive knowledge of the industry. This partnership will give our businesses a chance to expand together and tap into new and exciting areas of the industry. We’ve known and worked alongside Entwistles for many years as part of the GDL Network, so we are thrilled to be joining forces”.

Although Entwistle Group will take ownership, all management staff and facilities at Granthams GT Limited in Preston will remain the same. The formal trading name of the new company is Granthams GT Limited. The trading address will remain in Preston, while Entwistle will continue operating as a separate company in Manchester.
 
Granthams Copy and Print Bureau as well as the Online Art and Graphic Supplies operation in Charnley Road, Blackpool (trading under ArtDiscount.co.uk) will remain completely unaffected by these changes and continue under the ongoing ownership of Granthams Limited.
